Abstract

1, Studies are described that indicate that hypothalamic stimulation, at sites eliciting the defence reaction, results in an increase in adenosine levels in both the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) and rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) of the rat.2, Adenosine receptor antagonists applied to these sites attenuate the presser response elicited by hypothalamic stimulation, Adenosine appears to be produced extracellularly from ATP,which is released from axon terminals in both the NTS and RVLM.3, The implications of these observations for the pharmacology of hypothalamic actions on reflex inputs that modify cardiorespiratory function are discussed.
